What We Accomplished Wednesday #50

Taxes are behind us.  Can I get an amen?  Now we can just relax and have a little fun.  This week I had a wonderful surprise. Robin from Fluster Buster, featured my dropcloth curtains and invited me to cohost her weekly party, Fluster's Creative Muster. I am honored and thrilled to team up with Robin for this weeks party.

 Since both our parties run the same day, I am just replacing my usual party with this one. It will work the same way as usual, just link up your projects below, but this time your projects will be seen by both hers and my readers! How fun is that?

I am also expanding my features this week to ten...yes ten features! You wonderful people are so creative and I wanted to feature as many as I could this week. So here goes!

This stunning armoire was painted by Kelsey at White Cottage Boutique.  It will house a TV in her bedroom...lucky TV!

Easter eggs are usually colored bright or pastel colors, which is always pretty, but these kraft and lace eggs made by Cassie at Little Red Window, caught my eye.  Aren't they cute?  She even made the little nest out of paper shopping bags.

Melanie, from Lost and Found Decor, turned this old waterfall dresser into a work of art by handpainting the design on the front.

Ramon, from Row House, shared several floral arrangements he created for classes where he works. I think this bunny arrangement is so pretty.  Also check out the bicycle arrangement he did!

I have a similar sideboard to this one that Mary, at Orphans With Makeup, painted.  I love the details and color on this piece.

Doreen, from Altered Artworks is replacing her plastic storage bins in her craft room with fun vintage storage options. I love these lockers she painted to replace plastic rolling storage drawers.

Look at the yummy carved detail on this mirror that Peggy, from PJH Designs, transformed. Someone had painted it an ugly glossy brown, but now it is gorgeous!

Allie, from Craftiest Allie, shared a great tutorial on how to age new fabric with coffee...yes coffee! It's a real eye opener ;)

These Coconut Chocolate Ganache Macaroons were love at first sight. And they are gluten free...yeah me!  Bev, from Electric Red Barn, shares the recipe.

If you have a blog and are on Pinterest, you will love this post on optimizing for Pinterest, shared by Leslie from Lamberts Lately.  It is hands down the best article I've ever seen on the subject.

Okay it's time to party!  Please join Robin and myself in this special cohosted party this week.

I've been considering using dropcloths for my living room curtains. I've seen a lot of tutorials on how to make them but they all looked so plain. I was afraid that they would look like I just hung dropcloths from the curtain rods. However, Deborah from Green Willow Pond came up with a wonderful solution, Ruffled Dropcloth Curtains, they don't look like dropcloths at all.

Craft Booth Set Up

Well the craft show is behind me and I am whipped!  I didn't have high hopes for sales going in and it was a good thing.  None of the crafters did very well.  The venue included crafters, vendors and garage sale booths.  It was also a first annual.

However, it was at my old grade school, it was the perfect way to get my feet wet without being overwhelmed, and it only cost $15.  I did make some sales, had lots of compliments on my booth and products and lots of people took my card.  I was also invited to another art and craft show later this summer by someone who helps run it.  She really liked my products and said they didn't have anything like it in their show.  She also quoted me a handsome figure that she made at the show in a previous year.  That was exciting!

I had a really fun time and enjoyed the show despite low sales.  Will I do another?  Yes, I think I will.  I learned a lot and overall enjoyed the experience.  Here are some shots of my booth set up from the show.  I will post more detailed pictures of the products later.
